    I've been a longtime mouse user. In all cases, I prefer to use a mouse over everything else. While I've tried trackpads in the past, I detest using them. I find my productivity goes down, even when using the trackpad built in to my MacBook Pro.

    So... was wondering if there are any Apple Magic Trackpad users out there that can make a case for, or against the trackpad? It's one of the few out there I haven't tried, and I always like to give things a fair shake. With my Mighty Mouse Problems ongoing... It's probably not a bad idea to look for alternatives!

    Even though I don't have a Mac, I've been itching to buy an Apple Magic Trackpad to use with my MacBook.

    I use the magic track pad and love it. Hard to explain but when you start using it you will wonder why you ever used a mouse. It's very comfortable to use and intuitive.

    Been using Magic Track Pad since it came out. Haven't used a mouse since then. Great battery life from normal AA's.

    All I've ever used on my desktop Macs is the Trackpad. I have a Magic Mouse but I never use it. You will like it if you like the laptop ones.

    I love the trackpad. I've used mine since it debuted and have zero complaints. Battery life is great, especially if you get rechargeables.

    I like it on my iMac.

    I am used to the finger swiping so when I am at work on my Windows machine I constantly just want to swipe but can't!

    I truly love Apple's trackpad. It really is magic. Why? Because it's like a touch screen, it's glass, and you barely have to touch it. It's more human.

    That said, I still do have a mouse. And not that glass mouse either, that one is too flat. You can't use the trackpad for everything but you can use it for a lot more than the other guys.

    Have one and honestly it stopped working after warranty was up so I think Magic Mouse still the best
